The text of the Bhagavadgita with meanings
   The text of the Bhagavadgita is divided into eighteen chapters. The eighteen chapters add up to a total of seven hundred Slokas, each consisting of thirty-two aksharas with sixteen per line. The organization at the right is aimed at making it easy for the viewer to locate a specific section within a chapter based on the summary information given. The text of the Gita is presented with each Sloka followed by word meanings for each word in the Sloka and ending with a translation of the Sloka itself. 

  To make it possible for viewers to see text in Devanagari, without the hassles of special software or fonts, we have presented the text in the form of graphical images. On account of this it is likely that download times exceed a few seconds. We felt that all those viewing the text will not mind the additional download time, for the text presented in the form of the image is almost indistinguishable from normal text displayed through an html document.

  The presentation here is in terms of sections within each chapter. To look at a specific sloka number within a chapter, one may have to identify its section first. This arrangement is considered useful from the point of view of the overall structure of the text in terms of specific concepts or dialogs. The table at the bottom of this page may be used for getting the section corresponding to a sloka.
